Sumo - October is the tour (jungyo) month. There's a tournament in Yokohama (a short train ride from Tokyo) on 10/12. For more info, check Yokohama Jungyo Official Site (Japanese only).

They don't say anything about credit card orders. Try the email address at the top of the web site and ask questions.

In Kyoto they have five famous performances by geigi (geisha is the term used in Tokyo, they are called geigi in Kyoto.)
The performance (traditional dance accompanied by shamisen etc.) is held in April (Miyako Odori, Kitano Odori, Kyou Odori), May (Kamogawa odori) and November (Gion Odori). Unfortunately not available in October.

actually kyoto geisha are called geiko, but may also be called geigi. also there is a place called gion kobu corner where you can see a geisha dance.
